    (I sent to both address' and I'm not sure, but one came back to me, the other resulted in an answer. Give her a bit of time, like the rest of us.)

    HI Kellie,
    Nice to hear from you..........the Northern New England Bird Fanciers group meets monthly in Lewiston at the MPBN building, but for the next few months we will be meeting at the Farmington Fairgrounds(Maine). We will be having a Basket show ( an old timey name for a bird show) August 3rd at the Fairgrounds. Gates open at 8.00 a.m., and there will be a show, a swap and sell area, food tent, we are hope to have a bird testing area set up and after the show an auction of poultry and farm related items...............The registration for the show begins at 9.a.m. and fees are
    $1.00 per bird, 5 birds per breed, maximum of 25 birds per person.JUdging begins at 11:00
    You could call it a "chicken stock" kind of get together.......... this will be the 2nd year we have held the Basket show, last year our show was held at the Oxford fairgrounds and was very well attended with many vendors, LOTS of birds and plenty of "fowl" language spoken throughout the day. Please feel free to pass the info along or you could have folks contact me at my email address for more info. We would love to be included in the "Backyard Poultry Group" listing and I will sign up to be on their site as well. Well gotta " Fly", birds to feed and put to bed.Hope to chat with you again, Kath

    I don't have a link to their web page ( even tho I am a member) but you'll be able to get your birds tested ON SITE!! Wow! what a convenience! Just be sure to arrive early so you can get them tested BEFORE you try to set up.

    Here's a link to Central Maine Bird Fanciers, go there and you can find a whole page of state testers to choose from if you want to get it done prior to the 3rd.

    that's the spirit! [​IMG]


    I talked myself outta going.....I know, but it's a long drive...then some people came all the way from CANADA to buy a bunch of birds from me, so it was worth while to stay home.


    And the guy that's helping clear my back yard of trees (to make room for more chickens) came this morning, and I got him to start the weedwacker for me so I could put it to good use. (Why they can't make those puppies so a woman can start'em I don't understand!!)

    So Spook, tell us what happened??? How many chickens did ya buy???
